Identifying risk factors for breast cancer specific to women in their 40s could inform screening decisions.
To determine what factors increase risk for breast cancer in women aged 40 to 49 years and the magnitude of risk for each factor.

Circulating concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25-(OH)D] are used to define vitamin D deficiency. Current clinical 25-(OH)D targets based on associations with intermediate markers of bone metabolism may not reflect optimal levels for other chronic diseases and do not account for know
Timing of initiation of screening for breast cancer is controversial in the United States.
To determine the threshold relative risk (RR) at which the harm–benefit ratio of screening women aged 40 to 49 years equals that of biennial screening for women aged 50 to 74 years.
Despite recent improvements in survival after acute myocardial infarction (AMI), U.S. hospitals vary 2-fold in their 30-day risk-standardized mortality rates (RSMRs). Nevertheless, information is limited on hospital-level factors that may be associated with RSMRs.
Background Peripheral nodal follicular T-cell lymphomas expressing follicular helper T-cell (TFH) markers have recently been identified. Such lymphomas are characterized by a nodal neoplastic T-cell proliferation accompanied by numerous reactive B cells and demonstrate some overlap with nodal angiomai mult [no title]
Background Unlike T-cell neoplasms, B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders have a limited clinical spectrum of skin involvement. Cutaneous B-cell neoplasms mimicking rosacea or rhinophyma are rare.
Observations We described 12 patients with B-cell lymphoproliferative neoplasms presenting with a facimai mult [no title]

Objective To investigate the effectiveness of early depth assessment of local burns, the depth of which is difficult to assess with the naked eye, by dermoscopy.
Design The morphological findings of burn wounds were prospectively evaluated by dermoscopy and videomicroscopy. Prior to dermoscopic anmai mult [no title]
Objective To investigate the preliminary safety and efficacy of apremilast, an oral phosphodiesterase 4 inhibitor, for atopic dermatitis.
Design This investigator-initiated, open-label pilot study evaluated 2 doses of apremilast in patients with atopic dermatitis. Differential gene analysis was pemai mult [no title]
